Oyster is One of Favorite Seafood in Louisiana – Food 2

Fig 01- A Louisiana oyster dish

Marine products contributed US$ 1.8 billion in to Louisiana state economics. The products include:

- sea foods
- fisheries
- shellfish

In term of production, Louisiana is second largest after Alaska. Louisiana catches 1.3 billion pounds of marine creatures, while Alaska produced 5.3 billion pounds of seafood.

Oyster is one of my favorite seafood. Louisiana oyster has different taste compared to other oysters.

Louisiana oyster is quite like meat texture with “fresh earth” (earthy) flavor. Just to remind you that Louisiana oysters are harvested from Gulf of Mexico.

Other oysters which live in the ocean let’s say Pacific and Atlantic are different in tastes than Louisiana oyster.

The tastes could be saltier and sweeter.

Prices of Louisiana oyster dishes are range from US$ 9.00 to US$ 12 per six oysters, depend on kinds of restaurants.

I think price for raw oysters is quite cheap, US$ 30 for a 100 pound. It is mean that US$ 0.3 for 1 pound, contains 2 to 3 oysters per pound.

I often eat oysters in US$ 12 restaurants where I can eat everything available menus: fish, oyster, chicken, noodle, pizza, fruits, cake, ice cream and etcetera.

Public may harvested oysters from Gulf of Mexico, Louisiana in certain seasons. Oyster could be found in the areas such as:

- Shallow tidal zones
- Sub tidal zones.
- Estuaries
- Brackish water

Open season starts in September and closed in April. Louisiana authority in this case “Wildlife and Fisheries Commission” may decide to close or open the areas based on biological data.

Finally, have you taste an oyster?

What do you think about th taste: sweeter, salty or earthy?

  1. Aqui, também, as ostras são muito procuradas; além do sabor, as pessoas lhes atribuem poderes afrodisíacos e energéticos. Pessoalmente, prefiro outros tipos de mariscos; mas essas, da Louisiana, são bem atraentes! Meu abraço, bom resto de semana.,

  4. Sí que las he probado.
    Muchas veces.
    Me gusta su sabor salado pero hay que tener cuidado en los restaurantes si no las preparan bien.

  5. I haven't eaten oysters for some time now, but I think Portuguese oysters have a salty taste. But it depends on the spices used.
    Have a good weekend, Hugs.
